Relatives and friends of Gladys broke into tears as they laid to rest their only remaining grandmother, barely two weeks after the burial of the two brothers.

Last week, officers who were involved in the murder of the Kianjokoma brothers were suspended to pave way for investigations.

Elders and political leaders in Embu commended DPP Noordin Haji's quick action to get justice for the murdered brothers after he ordered the arrest of police officers linked to the deaths.

Former Runyenjes MP Cecily Mbarire said the investigations were swiftly conducted.

“We appreciate the expeditious investigations and look forward to seeing the Director of Public Prosecutions action with the urgency this matter deserves,” Mbarire said.
